There are some more interesting ones: When your palm itches, then money is coming… Don’t ask me from where; just go check your bank balance every time you feel the urge to scratch your palm.I’ve seen pregnant women with safety pins attached to their blouses and when asked they say it’s to ward off evil spirits. This weekend, I had fun asking some of my most cynical friends about old wives’ tales and urban legends and some of them have testified to the veracity of those things. My friend testified that EVERY time she has sneezed mysteriously she always gets a message saying someone was talking about her some where.
When we were younger, we were told that if you lost a tooth, you should take 7 smooth pebbles, turn around 7 times and hurl the tooth and pebbles right up the roof and something will happen. For the ‘aje butters’, it was more like you put the tooth under your pillow and the tooth fairy would put a gold coin in its stead.

Have a great week ahead, keep your head up and don’t forget, there’s always a reason to smile.
Love, peace & cupcakes!
